Forward Controls

Is there such a thing as forward controls for my 83 Aspencade? Looking for something similar to what's on a harley. I have size 14 boots and using the stock shifter is difficult.

I feel your pain as I also have a 14/15 shoe depending on the make and model. ;)
The only thing I can think of would be to go to footboards that have the heel/toe shifter modification.
Enjoy the ride. They are all good, just some better than others.

I don't have a photo. But most floorboard sets come with a heel/toe shifter mod. If I locate a picture I will let you know. Someone else that has this may supply a photo.
Ok here is a picture.

You can do a search for GL1200 flooboards.
Unless you find a used set they are kind of spendy.....

I did find this info, apparently they make them for Honda CB750s, CB900s.

I sent them an email about fitting to a Wing.

I don't think it will work because of the opposing cylinders.
But let us know.
